mawk (fast awk implementation)

mawk (Mike's AWK) is an interpreter for the AWK Programming Language. It's
a very fast AWK implementation based on a bytecode interpreter. Originally
written by Mike Brennan, mawk is currently maintained by Thomas E. Dickey.

The AWK language is useful for manipulation of data files, text
retrieval and processing, and for prototyping and experimenting with
algorithms. mawk is a new awk meaning it implements the AWK language as
defined in Aho, Kernighan and Weinberger, The AWK Programming Language,
Addison-Wesley Publishing, 1988.

mawk conforms to the Posix 1003.2 (draft 11.3) definition of the AWK
language which contains a few features not described in the AWK book,
and mawk provides a small number of extensions.
